I am a resourceful and imaginative highly trained professional, certified and licensed by the state of Texas. I have over 14 years of experience in PK-12 education, with expertise in art design, curriculum development, tutoring one-on-one, differentiated instruction, classroom management, student motivation, art theory, art history, visual aids, multicultural awareness, and technology integration.

I also specialize in all media, and I implement various thematic lesson plans focusing on relevant topics dealing with theory, history, drawing, painting, and crafts. I provide opportunities for each student to grow, develop, and reach his or her fullest potential through creative expression, cognitive strategies and production experiences. In the process of learning art, most of my students' motivation levels and self-esteem goes through the roof. Why? It is because art is also a lot of fun. I look forward to meeting you and your family soon.
